  1. In Country Life Magazine Feb 17th 2021 issue, there is a two page article about the German army at Castle Martin with a couple of photos.. Hopefully may be of interest.
  2. From memory it's called a Waukesha Knock Engine.
  3. Read the small print carefully... Cockpits premium 15% +vat, all others 25% +vat! That's a bit harsh.

  6. Maybe you need to get swmbo to agree to a tent repair, then repair it with 5 tons of RSJs and a truckload of insulated cladding.
  7. I tried imagining all sorts of things mounted on that panel but gas paint wouldn't have been one of them. So simple! So moving on, the pic of the kitted out truck - is the lathe lefthanded or have I got the perspective wrong? Thanks .
  8. Hi, In this film Brian Murphy is seen driving a Bedford (M?) truck. It appears to be in Army green suggesting it's been in service, and if you look closely it has what looks like a Nato type hitch to the left of the bonnet on the wing. Was there a hard point behind the wing for the hitch to be used in situ, or is this the storage location?
  9. Please excuse my ignorance, what is the purpose of the 'shelf' above the rad?

    The reg was backwards on a piece of tape seen on the inside of one of the Nubian Windscreens. Unfortunately, little is safe and nothing is sacred. The ramblers questionable 'right to roam' and rafts of bad info on social media regarding trespass laws appears to have given all toerags and lower middle class chavs the god given right think they can go wherever they want and do whatever they like - all very well until they walk into a Norfolk type situation. And you daren't challenge them. They have the camera and report you for being offensive, or return later and torch the place. Abou

    Noticed this on a sticker on a windscreen ion a YT video. Random no., or MV related?
  12. This may be of interest... Just browsing through some old Viewmaster reels and found a pic of what I think is a Bedford OY and another MV I can't identify outside Waterloo Barracks dated 1948. If anyone can work out how to get the picture digitized, it is Viemaster reel 1012 'Tower Of London', scene 1.
  13. I've been around at least a dozen E1A majors over the last 30 years, and only found out about the dipstick this morning! Knowing my current tractor had a replacement engine I just had to go and see - and yes, it has TRACTOR stamped on it.
  14. Ah, sorry, I'll just carry on following! Great thread, Rob.
  15. Hi, I hope I'm not repeating things. If you need parts for your 4D engine, the serial no. in here should give you the type and year... https://www.selen.nu/cgi-bin/trsnr.pl?lang=en Behind the dynamo there should be a casting code, put here to get the day of casting...https://www.selen.nu/cgi-bin/trnr.pl?lang=en Interested to know if the dipstick has 'TRUCK' or 'TRACTOR' stamped on it.
